Sam's Italian adventure

Sam seemed to maintain a good balance of training and enjoying what Italy had to offer.

We performed quite a few kata during our morning beach training, to the front of Sam is the Bulgarian chief Instructor.

Sam is one of the early karateka to attack Sensei Milena.

As with all competition there is a lot of waiting around.

Sam had the honour of leading in the England team, despite it having the union flag and not the George cross on it.

Sam has bags of potential which I am sure will be realised over the next few years, at only eleven years old it is all in front of him.

Sam seemed to do more than his fair share for international relations, his biggest fan was one of the bar maids at the sports village, who was fascinated by Sam's "lovely blue eyes" ...uck!

Sam uses the 2 hour boat trip to Venice to chat to his increasing fan club.

I am sure Sam is now taller than Sensei Helen, but not in Italy, Helen brings him down to size.

Sam, you will soon have to start your own international fan club to keep up with all your admirers.
